Western Diet is Linked to Heart Disease
A study led by Sarah Leibowitz of the Laboratory of Behavioral
Neurobiology at Rockerfeller University, shed some light on the link
between mother's diet during pregnancy and childhood obesity.
During the study the researchers fed pregnant rats a high fat diet
for two weeks compared with a balanced diet containing a moderate amount
of fat, and the results indicated that the young of the rats that
consumed the high fat diet tended to eat more and weighed more all
throughout their life – even though they were not fed the high fat diet
If the results of the new study also hold for humans, they could move
the debate forward a step towards the diet of mothers themselves.

A balanced plant-based diet is lower in fat than the typical Western
diet. It has shown to prevent and relieve many of the chronic diseases
and it's the diet that God intended for us.
